How Does Procurement Work?

In a nutshell, procurement entails outsourcing competent service providers to deliver on existing in-house needs. It usually begins with a user department having a specific need, let’s say construction or maintenance need.

Though the processes and level of transparency might vary between private and public players, the model is usually the same as summarized below;

  • Establish a Database of Pre-qualified Vendors for various needs
  • Confirm Availability of Selected Vendors to Participate in Opportunities
  • User Department should be part of the Pre-qualification process
  • An independent procurement department invites competent vendors to compete
  • Prudence & Quality are the two targets; Identify prudent contractors who do not compromise quality
  • Quality Control through project monitoring should be a joint exercise

Strategic Three Step Approach

Establish a database of reliable, competent and available vendors (service providers) to match specific needs in all in-house department. Where an organization is unable to establish such a database internally, it can rely onĀ  existing industry database such as NIPEX and through public call for expression of interest. Osborg assist vendors to meet up with the basic requirement to qualify them for enlistment into such databases.

The invitation to tender (ITT) can be open (to the general public) or restricted (to pre-qualified in-house vendors). This process allows an organization the opportunity to assess the technical competence of prospective service providers through assessment of industry requirements such as certificates, policy documents, tax compliance, regulatory permits, previous experiences and financial strengths.

This is the most critical stage of the procurement circle. It is the process and stage when the most qualified contractors are shortlisted for further evaluation

Successful contractors that succeeds through the technical qualification stage automatically qualifies into this second and final stage.

At this stage, contractors are expected to give their best (usually lowest) cost of executing the project in discuss. It is usually not the vendor with the lowest price that ends up getting the contract. Certain criteria are employed at this stage. Such criteria includes validating the reasonableness of the quoted sums. Where a qualified contractor proposes an unreasonably low price to execute a project, a procurement department usually disqualifies such a contractor (despite being the lowest price) and picks the reasonable quote.

This marks the end of the competitive stage and the beginning of the competence stage. Upon notification of success in the bidding stage, a contractor would be notified about it’s success and would be expected to put to practice his proposed methodology and strategy of project execution.

At Osborg, we assist contractors through all the above mentioned stages and ensure our client gets the best of the competitive process.
